Stockton firm Active Chartered Financial Planners has appointed Ruth Conner as its new marketing manager.
Thornaby-based Active, established in 2000, is a team of specialist independent financial planners providing a full suite of financial planning services to individuals, businesses and professional practices.
Ruth will be working closely with the directors to implement Active’s marketing strategy.
She’ll be responsible for managing the company’s website, blogs and social media profile, planning and co-ordinating Active’s business events programme and maximising Active’s media coverage.
Ruth has a wealth of B2B and B2C marketing experience having worked for the past eight years at Billingham-based catering butcher Country Valley Foods, owner of retail butcher Newboulds.
She previously worked as marketing executive at Durham Tees Valley and Newcastle airports and at Gateshead-based marketing agency Hippo Creative.
In addition to Ruth’s appointment, Active has recently celebrated anniversaries for two of the company’s independent financial advisers, with Colin Burke celebrating 15 years with the company and Mark Dobing 10 years respectively.
Managing director Karl Pemberton said: “Appointing Ruth as marketing manager is great news for Active, and as demand in financial planning continues, we plan to recruit more financial advisers in 2016.”
